About

Healing from the roots

I've always loved all kinds of art. When I was little I used to spend all day drawing women as divine and magic creatures (it seems making Sacred Feminine art was my destiny!) and I coursed artistic studies in the last years of the high school. Once I finished, I left everything and I went to live to a small city far from my home with a man that was a psychological abuser. I lived just a year with him but I came back feeling destroyed. It took me some years to really understand the consequences of the patriarchal system that I experienced and we all still experiencing, and I decided to help women to really love themselves, starting with their sex and reaching their soul. My art is a call to the faith of the origins and a tribute to the feminine energy. To all those forgotten qualities that are needed for the balance of the Yin and the Yang. For that, on a more earthly level, we need equality between men and women, symbols of these energies, in order to be able to transcend the currently established differentiation between genders and also be able to accommodate non-normative gender identities. Biological sex is another symbol, that's why I do vulvas. And we mustn't underestimate the power of a symbol. The genitals are still a taboo and the vulvas in particular are all uniquely and lovely shaped. Many women live
complexed by their labia and even many are operated or want to. They seem beautiful to me and I want the world to see and celebrate that. I want to promote self-esteem and feminine empowerment, because only in this way energy will be projected. I want us to be an expansive wave and for that we need to start becoming aware of our own body, genitals (which are a sacred portal where we bring life through, if we want), our changes and cycles (remember the anger of the goddess Kali), loving our menstruation (nowadays it bothers us because we want to be able to keep the accelerated rhythm of life that this society demands, but our blood is a symbol of life), and, in short, accepting, respecting and loving ourselves as we are.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

For any questions about custom and personalized orders please contact me directly

Care instructions

The main material is Polymer clay. Polymer clay is a kind of plastic, if it is treated well it endures many years in perfect state. As any piece of art, treat it carefully. Avoid alcohol solutions (like perfume). It is waterproof but don't wear it on water. Don't leave it in extreme heat.

For those pieces that have silver: clean the chain or the tiny silver pieces with baking soda and water. Don't rub the polymer clay.

Sizing details

Pieces' size and necklace's length are detailed in the description. If you want to change the length of the chain you can contact me before or after purchasing the piece.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I sell them all with a cute packaging made with love. I also send a card with a dedication. If you want to give it as a present, mark the "gift" box and add a note to the order telling me who it is for.

Wholesale availability

I don't sell wholesale

Where can I track the shipment?

When I ship your orders I send you a shipping note with the tracking code. You can track your shipment at www.correos.es (you can change the language up on the corner) with that code.

My package has not arrived (1)

The first thing you should do is check the shipping status with the code that I sent you with the shipping note. If the state is 'in cast', you can wait a couple of days. If it says anything else, these things can happen:
1. It has been delayed in customs.
2. They have tried to give it to you and there was no one in the house. In this case, the package is in your post office, or if it has been a lot of time, your package is coming back to me.
3. It has been lost.
In all three cases Your Best Sanctuary can not be held responsible, but there are different things you can do to claim:
1. Check if the estimated shipping time has passed (or if the tracking information is not updated or gives an error).
(continue in (2))

2. Go to your post office with the tracking code. There they should give you your package if they have it and if not, they must inform you of its status.
-If they give it to you, everything solved.
-If it has been lost, make a claim to be searched. If they can not find it, they will pay me back and I will be able to pay you back as well.
- If they have sent it back to me because the package has waited for more than 15 days in the post office, but you did not go to pick it up because they did not leave any note, in that case, if the package is coming back to me, when it arrives I will send you an email (to the email you use on Etsy) with the link to pay the shipment again. Once completed this step, I'll re-send your order.

Please be aware that I can do nothing to find the "lost" packages outside of Spain. I have the same information as you, the tracking code. If I file a claim here, the Spanish postal system sends a request there, in another country, to open an investigation, and it is a very slow process. The most practical thing is that you move following these instructions.
I am sorry I can not take care of the forwarding costs if the error has been in the destination country. If the problem has been in Spain or I wrote the address wrong, I will take care of the resending cost.
And finally, if the package is finally lost, I will put a claim and they will return the money, and I can return it to you or send you another piece.
